The above predicted tidal data is given for convenience only, please verify information yourselves.
It’s time to go to Bembridge on what, in effect, is our first rally of the new season. Bembridge is great at this time of the year though the weather can be chilly. If all goes according to plan it should be drinks at about 5.30pm and dinner at 7.30pm.
For those who haven’t been to Bembridge before (or visited in a while), be aware that the entrance to the harbour dries rather spectacularly therefore adequate depth is an issue and following the curving buoyed entrance channel a must. It’s quite logical in practice but consult your pilotage guides and proceed with caution.
Once inside it’s well worth it, so let us know as soon as possible if you’d like to come. Last minute attendees are welcome but we need to know numbers to confirm our bookings.
